to this hearing today to discuss the budget whoas also of the san francisco unified school district and how city partners helped us out of a very deep hole and continue to help keep us afloat and offer services to our students. i think another thing nancy wamack could maybe refresh us on is maybe that if the november ballot measures do not pass, we the governor has talked about additional school days cut. nancy, would you like to elaborate on that number, please? >> sure, commissioner. in the final version of the budget they changed the particular item to allow for an additional 15 days per year that could be cut rather than across 15 days the cross two years in january and may is version. state is now allowing up to 20 days per year to be cut from the school and from the school year, which is obviously atrocious. >> right. that would mean one month of school not being in session. this is really the state recommendation on how we should balance our budget is cut one month of instructions. that is just crazy and inexcusable. but i want to speak a little bit about what extra funds might do for our

promising partnerships that are occurring. san francisco unified school district's vision for student success, we do expect that every student who enrolls in our schools will graduate from high school, will be ready for college and career and be equipped with the skills to be successful in the 21st century. san francisco unified adopted a bold strategic plan with three goals focused on access and equity, student achievement, and account ability. -- and accountability. and there are six key milestones our superintendent has laid out toward measuring our progress and student goals. there are a few in here i want to highlight. they're kind of chronological starting with the first milestone, and that's the percentage of students who are ready for kindergarten. and that's important to today's topic because 30% of our students, based on our assessment, are actually showing up ready for kindergarten. so, that is a point of input. we then have a fourth grade milestone where you see that number after a few years has gone up a bit to 70 and 72% for meaning in which language arts and math standa

is these are students that are both not finishing school uc or ucs eligible and not graduating san francisco unified school district with a diploma if this pattern persists. so, just to call it out, for our 2014 class, african-american students, those are 246 kids today not on track. these are students that are not performing with a d or better in their required courses and only 76 that are on track if you look at the minimal requirements. if you see the 2015 class, you see that number there. now, of course, as they become juniors and seniors, you'll notice that the sequence gets even a little more stringent. so, the big question is what are some of the strategic actions and interventionses for closing this achievement gap, which is persisted for generations? >> commissioner. >> excuse me, deputy lieutenant. i have a question or clarification on the last slide. does that include students that are just in our regular schools or does that include our county schools? >> good afternoon, bill sanders, director division of curriculum instruction. it includes all students in that grade. >> okay, thank you.

of whether or not certain actions should be taken by the san francisco unified school district, including actions around the issue of waivers. that is a very important issue. to the extent that action is taken, those are things that have to have been at the san francisco board of education, not at this committee. we do not legally have the authority to direct the school district, which is a separate legal entity, to do anything. we hope to provide information today writ with that, i will turn it over to the school district. >> good afternoon. i am the executive director of the educational placement center. i am going to give you an update in terms of a transitional kindergarten program. district staff has been working for the past few weeks to work on implementation. we have processed all the applications that have been coming in. we give parents and families an extended time line when we announced that we were expanding the program to 5 sites instead of the two originally offered. we have a little bit over 190 applicants who have come back to apply for our transitional kindergarten progr

,000? >> it's important to note, other departments like the san francisco unified school district factor into their budgets payments for broadcasting. >> i only reason i ask that is i know that the housing authority has had trouble paying off judgments and other things so it's not flush with cash. >> they have an annual operating budget of $210 million. >> in terms of location, and i think televising commissions is a very positive and good thing. i very much am in favor of it. in fact, radio is good too, when we were back to kpoo. the difference between 440 turk and city hall, is there a down side to having it at city hall? >> i don't think there's any down sides to having it at city hall, in fact, for us only upsides. it's easily accessible and broadcasted live, and i think that what we heard from the residents would feel more comfortable coming here. >> thank you. that's useful >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> so i do have some public comment cards. i will call people up. sharon hewitt, who had to leave. want today noted she was here. robert woods. robert weber, karen huggins
